Inspired by Renee Perle - Vogue Germany; March 2009
It is pouring outside, but I can still feel Springtime in the cool, damp air - and I was reminded of the moody sepia tone photographs of Jacques Henri Lartigue - specifically the ones taken of Renee Perle. Renee has long been a great inspiration to me, mostly because of her ethnic make up (Romanian and Jewish), which was at the time rather controversial. The kind of beauty that Renee possessed cannot be purchased; she had a depth of character and an innate sense of style. Being a fashion model helped of course, but when you study her in photographs, there is something soulful, and dreamily melancholic about her. The lacquered raven hair, sepia skin, mesmerizing dark eyes, and plum painted pout - what an eccentric beauty! These photographs inspired by Renee were featured in the 2009 March issue of Vogue Germany, hope you enjoy them!
